Having a Voice Launch - Gataker's Artspace

Lillian Coyne and Library Technician Deborah McCall

The Libraries' local history project, Having a Voice, endeavoured to record oral histories of people who traditionally did not have a voice. Communities of interest included women, Australian Chinese, Aborigines, Australian South Sea Islanders and poor rural people. The exhibition consists of portraits and oral history videos and was launched at Gatakers Artspace on the 6th April, 2018. Councillor George Seymour attended the event as did many of the participants.
